era -- remember that midterm election in bill clinton's first term, the republican revolution when they took the house for first time in a generation, the dozens of seats, that congress put the harry truman do-nothing congress to shame, passing only 88 laws in 1995. that is on record as the least productive congress in the united states, 1995. but now, oh, baby, usa! usa! new record! right now, john boehner's congress, this congress right now has passed fewer than 60 public laws in the whole year. unless some miracle happens in the roughly five minutes that john boehner plans to have congress working between now and the end of the year, we are about to set a new, all-time record, an all-time american record, since the history of our country, about to set a new all-time record for the size of the ratio between what we pay these guys and what they do. it's kind of easy to see what happened. i mean, if you spend all of your time and all of your effort saying you're going to repeal obama care, which is not actually going to happen, then that takes up time in which you could be actually
